Under such circumstances, ambiguity may more faithfully reflect adherence to the data than would spurious precision. For example, the evidence indicates that Papanicolaou smears are effective every one to three years, and that mammographic screening can reduce mortality whether it is performed annually or every other year [ 43 ].

A distinctive feature of microeconomic theory is that it aims to model economic activity as an interaction of individual economic agents pursuing their private interests. It is therefore appropriate that we begin our study of microeconomic theory with an analysis of individual decision making.
